What is the role of Social Procurement post-JOBKEEPER (VIRTUAL)

Session held on 30th March 2021

About this session

Social procurement policies have often been directed at the disadvantaged in the past. A number of good procurement case studies illustrate how the disabled, long-term unemployed, young people at risk and migrants and refugees can be supported with well-executed approaches to social procurement. In a wider context, similar approaches have also helped indigenous Australians and, even, prison inmates. 

Yet, post Jobkeeper, a new clientele might benefit from more proactive social procurement strategies – the ‘new’ unemployed – perhaps from the hospitality, travel, tourism, education or events sectors?   

But what’s in it for you – the buyer? For your organisation? For your city? Or even for your suppliers? Where is the business case?  Can everyone truly benefit?

Join Social Traders to explore these questions and understand the breadth of social procurement work to engage those in need with work through the supply-side and how it can fit your needs and your environment as well, for the benefit of a wider range of stakeholders.
